It’s a hidden pocket of just 9 peaceful streets and cul-de-sacs that feels far removed from the nightmare of traffic and the daily grind that exists just minutes down the road at other Centenary suburbs. The recent western freeway upgrades means that it only takes a 15-minute drive to get to Westfield Indooroopilly or 25 minutes to Brisbane CBD.
As a new resident of Sumner Park, you will love being surrounded by vast green and forested spaces, and waking up to kangaroos and other beautiful native animals grazing along the back fence.
